I've heard quite a few people say that. While I am NOT on the bandwagon of people who think they stopped being good in 77 I definitely enjoy Jerry's voice before it started going down hill in 78. I understand what you're saying but in the case of Wharf Rat for example, no way is anything going to top say, for example, the version on Skull and Roses ( one of the very first ) where he nails those long notes.

Just my preference.

Love Garcia's voice late '82 through the end of '84.
Seriously... It's just got the emotion. I love my early Dead too, but I find his voice 'whispery'. After the coma it changed..period. Saw 'em 'till the end, rarely listen to anything after '86, mainly because of the vocals.
Different strokes...

I think a great example of this comes on a tune from the JGB, Gomorrah. I have some versions from 76 or 77 and he nails it vocally(not an easy thing to do because the tune doesn't flow) then i listen to the version off the JGB live disc How sweet it is and it's night and day.

i always wondered if they dubbed the vocals on the skullfuck wharfrat. i know they added some organ parts to it.

I dunno, I don't have the actual show that one is from to compare. At least not that part of the show. It's the April 71 Fillmore run I think. He nailed quite a few others around then though. Which show was it frome? maybe I do have it.

either way it's a phenominal peice of music. One of the first songs and versions that really showed me why the band was so special
